a couple of rallies in october

There is one rally that’s happening that people might be interested in:

One Nation Working Together is a social movement of individuals and organizations committed to putting America back to work and pulling America back together. Coming from a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, beliefs and orientations, we are determined to build a more united country with good jobs, equal justice, and quality public education for all.

The Partners for this event range from Code Pink to Friends of the Earth to Interfaith Worker Justice to NAACP to Planned Parenthood to United Steelworkers of America.   One hasn’t heard too much about this event (at least I haven’t) but hopefully it will be a little more successful than some of the rallies by those from the dark side.

And then there is the rally of all rallies at the end of October in Washington D.C.  Yes, I’m talking about John Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity.” on October 30, 2010.  In a strange serendipitous convergence, it just so happens that Stephen Colbert is having his March to Keep Fear Alive that very same day.

Here is John announcing his rally, Stephen announcing his march.
